Materials and Jointing Methods

  • A. J. Croft
Part of the The International Cryogenics Monograph Series book series (INCMS)


The construction of low-temperature equipment calls for materials with special physical properties, and the use of many materials at low temperatures brings special problems of its own. The relevance of various physical properties will be discussed first, and then we shall review the extent to which actual materials have them.
